. >> the administration is on the defensive clearly and the crickets want it to be about the president's credibility that he is lying, that he knew all along. but there are some facts you have to engage with here. when the president made those statements, they grandfathered in all of the existing insurance policies before the affordable care act passed. the government cannot be responsible for the decisions of private insurance companies. and the people who are getting their plans canceled are 5% of the market who operate on the individual policies. most of those people are going to discover that if they go on the exchanges, they will find a better deal and that the insurance they had would be canceled when they got sick, that they would be dropped if they developed some sort of condition. it is what they call junk insurance. so, time will sort this out. the website will be fixed. people will discover they have options and this will entering now a period of dualing anecdotes, horror stories versus success stories. >> chris matthews, why wait on time? why don't you sort out what she just said. >> i
